All Eyes on Middle East and Balkans for Next US Combat Caper

The next major US military operation is likely to take place in the Middle East or the Balkans, according to an analysis published by the US magazine The National Interest.

The US is most likely to enter into a military operation in the Middle East or the Balkans, according to a study of its most recent military activities which was published in the US magazine The National Interest.

Author Daniel Sukman created a graphic to display the US' combat and peacekeeping operations over the last 35 years, from which he deduced the next most likely targets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to the Obama administration: you have a citizenry which is stretched to the limit, financially; is very war-weary, and war skeptical; and does not want more wars, thank you very much.

And we have "a modest proposal" for fighting whatever the next military misadventure you folks might conjure up. Henceforward,only the sons and daughters of owners of major corporations which contribute to your campaigns, and which find wars profitable, shall be the only ones fighting, getting maimed for life, and dying in these wars.

After all, that would be more than fair, wouldn't it?!?

A United Eurasia From Minsk to Manila

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev built upon President Putin's earlier suggestion and formally proposed a grand multilateral economic partnership during his trip to China.

Russia has historically been known for thinking big, so what the Prime Minister proposed is totally in line with the country's political culture. While in the Chinese city of Zhengzhou to partake in the SCO Council of Heads of Government, Medvedev ambitiously stated that:

"Russia proposes starting consultations with the Eurasian Economic Union and Shanghai Cooperation Organization, including the counties joining the alliance, and with countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations on the creation of an economic partnership based on the principles of equality and mutual interests."

This suggestion corresponds to what President Putin said during his 3 December Address to the Federal Assembly, when he announced that:

The Confiscation of Bank Savings to “Save the Banks”: The Diabolical Bank “Bail-In” Proposal

In Cyprus, the entire payments system has been disrupted leading to the demise of the real economy.

Pensions and wages are no longer paid. Purchasing power has collapsed.

The population is impoverished.

Small and medium sized enterprises are spearheaded into bankruptcy.

Cyprus is a country with a population of one million.

What would happen if similar ‘hair cut” procedures were to be applied in the U.S. or the European Union?

Happy New Year — Bail-In Passed for Europe’s Banks

The mainstream media is not extensively reporting on the “experimental” bail-in that the EU imposed on Cyrus. The bail-in, that they swore would never be applied to Europe, will officially begin in January. This new power will be in the interest of taxpayers as they will no longer be forced to pay for failed banks that were created by the childish structure of the euro that was created by lawyers who never understood the economy. But wait a minute — aren’t taxpayers the people with deposits in banks? Hm. Moving to electronic money is also about preventing bank runs. The bottom-line here is that they will just take your money to save bankers.

Euthanasia for children nears approval by Belgian Parliament; doctors to mass-euthanize children and Alzheimer's patients

A proposed law on the verge of approval by the Belgium parliament would allow children to decide for themselves whether they should be euthanized ("killed") by medical personnel. Currently, Belgian law limits euthanasia to persons 18 and older, but with the rise of autistic children thanks to biopesticides, GMOs and vaccines, nations are increasingly trying to figure out what to do with all these children who have been permanently damaged by the medical and biotech industries.

Turkey: A Criminal State, a NATO State

Crimea recovering after decades in Ukraine's oblivion - Polish official

Ukrainian nationalists have some territorial claims against Poland, even if the Ukrainian state does not announce it officially. We should not forget that the supporters of pro-Nazi Bandera killed thousands of Poles in 1943-44. So, under the new nationalist leadership Ukraine becomes a potential enemy of Poland. We should probably be grateful to the Russian president Putin for the fact that Ukraine keeps most of its troops in its eastern borderlands, and not on the border with Poland. There are some Polish politicians who hate Russia even more than they love Poland. I don't belong to their group. I love Poland before anything else. "Do you share the view of some European experts that the government controlled by the Polish nationalists from PiS will be dangerous for Poland?" I would not really give the name of the Polish nationalists to all of these people from PiS or from the Civic Platform. PiS is rather pro-American, while PO was more, like, pro-German.

German lawmakers irked by NATO plane deployment

A NATO force of reconnaissance planes that includes German personnel will be sent to help Turkey police its border, drawing ire from politicians in Germany who said on Sunday they were not consulted.

"The government must immediately inform parliament of the details of this deployment, in particular what missions will be assigned to these planes and the destination of any data they collect," Tobias Lindner, the green party's head of defence matters, demanded in German daily Bild.

Though the mission involves sending German troops abroad, the government said it has no plans to consult the Bundestag, Germany's lower house of parliament.

The defence ministry noted the deployment was aimed at carrying out airspace surveillance and not armed operations.

NATO plans a temporary transfer of AWAC aircraft from the west German base in Geilenkirchen to the Konya base in central Turkey, Germany's defence ministry wrote in a December 18 letter revealed Sunday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

German NATO elements are being pre-positioned in Turkey, but the question is, what is the "real reason" they are being deployed now, and how many will be deployed?!? The AWACs are command and control platforms.

And were I a member of the Bundestag, I would also be royally ticked off that the government didn't believe this deployment wasn't worth informing me - and us - about.

So far, Turkey's US and NATO-enabled Edrogan has been perfectly content in playing the picador against Putin, including shooting down a Russian bomber; so what is the next step here?!?!

I think this is more worrisome than it might appear to be, in terms of looking at NATO's long game against Russia, and trying to provoke Putin into doing something stupid (or creating a false flag to be blamed on Putin), to provoke a military confrontation against it.

Hillary Clinton Touts Overthrow of Gadhafi, but Doesn’t Mention That Clinton Foundation Donors Did Big Business in Tyrant’s Libya

On Saturday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton again justified the 2011 U.S. policy of regime change in Libya, citing, at least in part, the fact that dictator Moammar Gadhafi had killed Americans.

“We have to continue to do what is necessary when someone like Gadhafi, a despot with American blood on his hands, is overturned,” Clinton said during the weekend’s Democratic presidential debate in Manchester, New Hampshire. “But I’ll tell you what would have happened if we had not joined with our European partners and our Arab partners to assist the people in Libya, you would be looking at Syria.”

But early in the administration, Clinton had championed an allegiance with the Libyan regime under Gadhafi, during a time when some of the major U.S. corporations doing business in Libya were also donating heavy sums to the Clinton Foundation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Do not for a moment imagine that this "pay to play" mentality will suddenly leave her consciousness, if she is able to win (or steal) the election; it will simply continue, unabated. For her and Bill Clinton, inhabiting the White House is simply another way to make millions of dollars through her foundation, and the public be damned.

And this is why we have to bring her past behaviour to the unblinking gaze of documented fact, because, if in fact, past is prologue to the future, we can expect massive international interventionism from a second Clinton presidency.

And has anyone out there had the "male attributes" to ask her if the current post-Ghadaffi situation in Libya, which has been rife with civil war since 2011; whose leadership has been badly factionalised and has just this month created a basis for a national unity government, was the outcome she desired when she green-lit Ghadaffi's assassination?!?

And what about the reality that Libya has become a
second home to ISIS?!?

Because if all I have stated here were not the outcomes Clinton desired as Secretary of State, and were simply "unintended consequences" of her policies here, please consider Libya a thoroughly terrifying, but very real, "prequel" to what a Clinton presidency will look like.

Revealed: How EU chiefs will be able to spend unlimited amounts on pro-Brussels propaganda in run-up to referendum

The European Commission is set to launch a prolonged 'information' campaign in the lead up to the referendum in a bid to persuade voters to keep Britain in the EU.

Voters are expected to receive endless pro-Europe propaganda ahead of the all-important vote on whether Britain should remain in the EU.

Due to the European Commission being based overseas, it is not forced to adhere to the strict British election rules on the amount of leaflets and posters produced for their pro-EU campaign.

Campaigners for Vote Leave have raised concerns that they face an uphill battle against the greater finances of the pro-Europe campaign.

“Antisémitox will finally heal your anti-Semitism,” is the new campaign buzz of the European Jewish organization (OJE ) in the fight against anti-Semitism, Le Journal du Buzz reports.

Inside the box of Antisémitox you’ll find three honey candies, detox patches, and the text stating the legal penalties against people expressing anti-Semitism in public.

On the back of the box you’ll find an indication of everything the new drug can cure: Insults, swearing, aggression, delusions, revisionism, insulting gestures (quenelles — the Nazi-like salute popularized by an anti-Semitic French comedian), and “fièvre du vendredi soir” (Friday night fever).

Bush cancels Europe trip amid calls for his arrest

Dec 26 - A planned trip by Bush to speak at the Switzerland-based United Israel Appeal later this week has been canceled after several human rights groups called for Swiss authorities to arrest Bush and investigate him for authorizing torture. Bush has traveled widely since leaving office, but not to Europe, where there is a strong tradition of international prosecutions.

Anywhere in the world that he travels, President Bush could face investigation and potential prosecution for his responsibility for torture and other crimes in international law, particularly in any of the 147 countries that are party to the UN Convention against Torture.

“As the US authorities have, so far, failed to bring President Bush to justice, the international community must step in,” said Salil Shetty.

The Assault on Gender and the Family: Jewish Sexology and the Legacy of the Frankfurt School, Part One

Volkmar Sigusch (1940- ) may not be a familiar name to readers, but for those concerned about the modern assault on traditional attitudes to gender and sexuality it should be. You might have encountered the term ‘cisgender,’ a Sigusch creation that is rapidly gaining traction in common speech. For those unfamiliar with it, it has come to replace “normal” and even the more deviant-friendly term ‘heterosexual.’ Specifically, the term refers to those “who feel there is a match between their assigned sex and the gender they feel themselves to be. You are cisgender if your birth certificate says you’re male and you identify yourself as a man.” The goal behind inventing such a bizarre and convoluted label for that which is natural and healthy is, of course, to further dilute the identity of the present and coming generations, and convince us all that there is no “normal,” only different positions within an ever more colorful spectrum.

In other words, Europe and Turkey declined to allow Russia to use their airspace on the way to conducting airstrikes against the very same terrorists that attacked Paris just four days before the long-range warplanes were deployed to the fight in Syria.

Soros Plays Both Ends in Syria Refugee Chaos

Since John D.

No less the case is that of George Soros who likely has more tax-exempt foundations under his belt than anyone around. His Open Society foundations are in every country where Washington wants to put ‘their man’ in, or at least get someone out who doesn’t know how to read their music. They played a key role in regime change in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe after 1989. Now his foundations are up to their eyeballs in promoting propaganda serving the US-UK war agenda for destroying stability in Syria as they did in Libya three years ago, creating the current EU refugee crisis.
